A locked car in summer is just as hot as an oven. TV chef Matt Moran has proved that by cooking a piece of lamb to demonstrate the danger of leaving children in hot cars.
Inviting some of the media, the chef does a cooking demonstration on Bondi beach but they aren’t aware that he left a lamb loin on a tray in a nearby car.
As the temperature in the car starts cooking at 27.1 degrees, the lamb gradually starts browning and oozing fat, reaching a whopping 70 degrees Celsius.
‘They’re expecting a normal food demonstration, but I’ve got something far more important to show them,’ he explains in the beginning of the video.
The crowd were shocked to see Moran pull the lamb out the car and slice it open, revealing it had cooked the whole way through.
‘The real reason I’ve got you here today has nothing to do with launching an oven. It’s to do with 5000 kids who are left in cars every year,’ he explains in the video.
‘I think Australia needs to know it is not safe at any point in time to leave a kid in a car. It is like an oven.’
